Kristen Dollarhide of Travel Pendleton talks about the recent surge in tourism to Umatilla County, how local businesses can make the most of the influx, and plans out a 36-hour visit to Pendleton.
Tim Trainor and Steve Hill, known for their prowess betting NFL games, are pushing their gambling luck onto the Kentucky Derby, which takes places Saturday in Louisville. Listen in, and hope the pickers can share some winning tips.
Tim and Steve close out the 2018 football season (a successful one and money-maker for listeners!) and begin enjoying all the games the Winter Olympics have to offer. Thanks for listening all year long, and congrats to the champion Philadelphia Eagles.
Steve is a heartbroken Vikings fan, who has to watch the Eagles flood into home territory to play the boring old champions — the New England Patriots. The only thing that can cheer him up? Cashing some prop bets. Steve and Tim go through a few of them here as they try to salvage a rather underwhelming Super Bowl matchup.
Steve Hill needed a whole week after his Vikings loss to be able to speak again. The pickers talk about wins by Philadelphia and New England and what the future has in store for Minnesota. We’ll leave out Super Bowl pick until next week. Most lines have the game at New England -5.
Steve, Umatilla County’s biggest Minnesota Vikings fan, is walking on Cloud 9 after last week’s incredible finish put his team into the NFC Championship. We’re thinking his fandom his caused problems for his gambling IQ however, as the pickers went 0-3-1 last week. This week, they go with two more favorites: Minnesota (-3) and New England (-7.5).
Tim and Steve were dealt some blows last week, as underdogs went 4-0 against the spread and the pickers only went with one of them. This week, Steve is worried about his Vikings, so they choose to go with Atlanta (-3), Tennessee (+13.5), Pittsburgh (-7) and Minnesota (-5.)
Steve is back from foreign lands to pick some games with Tim — and none too soon, after last week’s 0-5 debacle. But the playoffs begin in earnest, and the boys are chasing a perfect 11-0 stretch. To start, they take Kansas City (-8.5), LA Rams (-6), Jacksonville (-8.5) and Carolina (+6.5).
The NFL regular season comes to an end, and with Steve out of the country, Tim and George make the final picks of the year. They go with Pittsburgh (-11), Washington (-3), Oakland (+7), New Orleans (-7) and Seattle (-9.5). Thanks for listening all year long, and check in next week as the playoffs begin.
Tim Trainor has to pay off his bet after his Bengals lost to Steve’s Vikings last week. So through the course of this podcast, he ate three footlong corn dogs and one deep-friend German sausage.
The pickers went undefeated last week, but they missed out on their 5-0 goal after they went 3-0-2 with two pushes. That puts their season record at 40-28-6.
This Christmas week they take Detroit (-5), L.A. Rams (-6.5), Cleveland! (+6.5), San Francisco (+4.5) and Dallas (-5).
